All is well?

Updated: Dec 6, 2022

Dost fail ho jaye toh dukh hota hai, lekin dost first aa jaye toh zyada dukh hota hai.

A majority of us can relate to this dialogue. And so do you, don't you? 

And it's okay to feel that way. It's a human feeling, and this doesn't mean that you are not happy for your friend's success, but we understand that in today's day and time, the rise of hustle culture has led us all to feel like we have to achieve success as fast as possible or we will get left behind. 

What is Hustle Culture?

 We all have seen these popular hashtags on social media, especially on platforms such as LinkedIn. 

"Hustle culture is about work dominating your time in such an unnatural way that we have no time to live our lives," said Joe Ryle. Hustle culture is a lifestyle where career is the top priority in your life, due to which human needs such as rest, family time, hobbies, and self-care gets neglected and take a back seat.

Hustle Culture is the lifestyle of someone who lives to work and doesn't take a break or rest, and such people are also called 'workaholics.' This lifestyle demands us to forget our innate needs and desires in pursuit of achievement. 

Why has such an unhealthy culture become a lifestyle for many? This is because people tend to believe that working harder and harder will make them successful and that if they pause to take a break, they will stay behind. But these people forget that life is not a race in which they must keep running faster and faster. It's a marathon or, rather, a journey whose finish line you can only reach if you care for your mental, physical and emotional health.

But are you also a part of this Toxic Productivity culture?

Ask yourself if you constantly feel the need to be doing this? Do you feel guilty for not being productive? Are you deprioritizing your physical, mental, or emotional health? 

If the answer to these questions is YES, then you must focus on setting boundaries, committing to self-care and rest, and being mindful of the work-life balance.

We all have been in situations where we have felt that the output is measuring our worth, so we are constantly working harder to maintain our position, lest we lose our place in line. But is this lifestyle supporting us? We think not. It's draining and unsustainable, ultimately leading to burnout, and it is impractical and unfair to measure one's success based on external achievement.

We saw your hard work and dedication.

No, we won't let an achievement define your success. But we understand that it must have been very disappointing when you worked so hard and gave it your best, but the results were not in your favor. And no, this blog is not about looking at the silver lining, and we won't ask you to see the glass as half full because we know you worked hard enough to deserve a full glass. We are here for you and to help you look at things from a different perspective so we can achieve your desired results together.

And if you ever need to talk, you can always reach out to DhairyaDa, we'll be there for you and listen to you, and we won't tell you to "work harder next time"; all we'll say is All Is Well.
